Nesting starlings

Our pair of starlings seem to be sticking with this very large hole presumably excavated by woodpeckers some 40ft up one of the trees about 30ft from our back door.untitled-2124

The mandarins have visited us the last two nights, on the bird table and our pond.  Have not seen any migrants so far and no owls this year as the box has been taken over by squirrels.  Plenty of redpolls, goldfinches, yellowhammers, wrens, robins, nuthatches, woodies, blackbirds and the usual array of tits and finches with the exception of greenfinches.  Jays are around now and still hear the curlews from time to time though still only one pair.

Willow Warblers & Swallows

One Willow Warbler heard and another seen, whilst waiting for the steam train at the overbridge just north of Dolau station. Also 2 Swallows seen above the Ithon bridge just south of Crossgates and another on telegraph lines by the Severn Arms in Penybont.

Kestrels, Penybont common

Very pleasing to see 2 Kestrels on the common tonight after a very long time of only seeing one. Hopefully a pair? If the number of rodents in our attic and garage at the moment is anything to go by, the mild winter should mean a good vole year for our Kestrels and Owls.
